That is of course the home of the bulovas. I prefer them without the somewhat useless spike finial in any case. Have seen some with or without a brass butt piece with a steel spike that makes more sense. At the head end the spike is prevented from going in too far by the axe blade upper tip itself. This one looks like it may be a bit heavier built than usual, more like my Sikh version: ( It'd be better if the head were further towards the tip, IMHO. My more std. bulova with the brass butt (no spike) is also below.
